The trip was actually in April, 2015, not 2016...but really wanted to share my experience here. Great hotel, great location, great facilities. The staff was just fabulous. We have received an upgrade, which only made the whole experience even better.

Stayed here for New Year's Eve, we were really looking forward to it. The hotel is beautiful and expansive. There's lots of nice areas to explore. Staff is very friendly and helpful. That's about where the good ends. The first room we were in was large and comfortable with a very large walk in, but the walls are incredibly thin....

Stayed here for 3 nights with wife and son. My expectations were met, though nothing wowed on our visit. Staff was very friendly, common areas were well maintained, and location was good. The actual rooms are fine but unremarkable. If renting a car, try to find a date that includes parking, as they charge a confiscatory $62+tax.

A spontaneous trip for a family of five to San Francisco was worth it. The sunny skies, beautiful city, and luxury accommodations at the Fairmont on Mason Street was fun for a get together before kids head off to college. The king suite on the 6th floor was roomy, clean, comfortable, quiet and a great gathering place for the family....

I love everything about this hotel. It is historic, beautiful and restored to a magical beautiful era. The lobby looks like a work of art, the rooms are large and the bed heavenly and very comfortable. The bathroom clean and elegant. It is as good as it gets especially if you love old school luxury. My only knock was the...

We arrived at the Fairmont rather tired, bedraggled and upset after a LONG drive from the Grand Canyon to Yosemite (only to be told that Yosemite was closed and our hotel reservations were cancelled). After a diversion to San Fran and yet more driving, we ended up at the Fairmont and in front of the wonderful reservation lady who couldn't...

We upgraded to a Tower Room with a view of Nob Hill. The room was large and comfortable and a bathroom of good size. Service was friendly. An easy taxi ride to Harris' Steakhouse, John's Grill, and Fino restaurants....we could have walked to these if we were younger and it wasn't raining. One forgets the steep hills of San Francisco...

Only got to stay here one night during the holidays - great staff, clean room, great lobby areas to meet with friends. Tiki downstairs is incredibly crowded. Guests should have so kind of easier access. Parking $$$ is ridiculous, but that is common in the area.

We wanted to stay in the City for a few days during the holiday season to enjoy the holiday spirit, to go to the new SFMOMA, to shop and to visit with friends. We chose the Fairmont for this visit because we had read about the tradition of the two story gingerbread house and were curious. The Gingerbread House was...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
